2012 Essential Theatre Festival

2012 The Essential Theatre Festival
“Evelyn in Purgatory” by Topher Payne, directed by Betty Hart
“THE LOCAL” a collaborative project directed by Ellen McQueen
“Bat-Hamlet” by Jordan Pulliam, directed by Peter Hardy

THE LOCAL. Is a collaborative theatre project made of short pieces by different Atlanta artists. All the pieces are set in different Atlanta locations. There are also pieces based on real stories collected from local people. The stage is set for the many locations through the use of projected photographs.

THE LOCAL is being produced by The Essential Theatre in July, 2012, as part of a three play festival performing in the King Plow Arts Center in Atlanta. The Essential has got the bare bones covered but this project wants to fly. There are playwrights, poets, choreographers, photographers, designers, songwriters, rappers, dancers, and more artists involved, all with wonderful creative ideas that need some financial fertilizing to fully flower.  [read more]
